Because of its high-caliber folk songs, Linxia Prefecture was named “China’s Flower Country” by the Chinese Folk Literature and Art Association.

Whenever I go to a place, I will always check the food culture there. The Chinese land is full of food, the food is spread all over the corner, I have eaten too much, and I have not eaten more. Every time I walk to a city, the local customs, the ups and downs, are actually included in the three meals of the day. Follow my footsteps, from the early morning to the night, let us use the nose to taste the summer with the tip of the tongue, and taste this unique summer flavor.

    The beef is cut and cooked with the internal organs of cattle and sheep. It is a delicious and affordable Hui traditional snack. It has a long history and is well-deserved. As early as the Ming Dynasty, the Hui people’s skills in cooking and cutting were very exquisite. In the “Xu Xiake’s Travels”, geographer Xu Xiake recorded the situation of tasting cattle and sheep in the Hui people’s home. In October of Chongzhen (AD 1638), he inspected in Kunming, Yunnan, and was friendly with the Hui poet Ma Yunke of Xundian. At the beginning of November, he wanted to transfer the location and continue to inspect. Ma Yunke left him at home for hospitality. Every day, “cutting chickens is a simmer, and the dishes are cooked and boiled, and they are very clean.” Not only the southern Hui people loved it, but the north also praised it. There is a poem in “Dumen Miscellaneous”: “And the throat is bad.”
    The two masters cut one and cooked, and they were seamlessly docked. The technique was quite skilled. The big guys came from hungry belly. One eye knew what to eat. This must be a regular visitor. You can have a beef or a pure tripe. Sprinkle with plenty of pepper, the spicy taste is full of fragrance, instantly open the taste buds that have not woken up in the morning, drink a soup, and immediately warm from the head to the toes!

    Linxiang Dongxiang people love to drink tea, and they must strive for perfection from the combination of tea sets, tea and ingredients. Tea sets must choose “three forts”, “three fort” as the name suggests, it consists of three layers of cover, samovar and palm. The requirements for tea are even more stressful. Yunnan Chunjian tea and glutinous tea are the highest grade. When drinking, put the tea in the “three fort” tea pot, pay attention to brewing with the boiled “peony” boiling water. Then, use the lid to gently go to the back, slowly scrape from shallow and deep, let the tea slowly sink into the bottom of the tea bowl.

    When the car is on the streets of Linxia, ​​the words that appear most in front of the eyes are not “hands”. Although I had eaten a lot in the northwestern pavilion in Beijing before, it was really out of the hands of Linxia, ​​which is quite what I yearn for.
    Hand-caught lamb is a representative food in Linxia. There is a kind of rumor that “speaking, grasping Linxia”, “guests come, don’t eat, grab, come to the summer”…..so the hand-caught lamb has almost become the generation of Hezhou food culture.table. According to research, Linxia was called “枹罕”, and Hezhou sheep was also called “stack sheep”. It used to be a tribute to the court, and “the stack of rare red mutton mutton” has always been famous.
